I saw The History Boys last week. I'd say what I think of it, but I can't think of a way of doing that that wouldn't amount to saying that I consistently find current theatre more intelligent, and in this case also a lot more amusing, than current film.
So I just have a question and an observation.
The question: Does anyone know when the film version, apparently nearing completion, will be released? I'm interested in seeing how it translates.
The observation, perhaps of interest to people involved in film: The video segments, by a fellow named Ben Taylor, are wonderful, especially the send-up of the BBC. Together with the staging, they help a 3 hour play zip along like a high speed passenger train.
